Both Chelsea and the Real came up short this year, but that is not a reason to keep looking good.  Chelsea’s kit looks a bit like someone got run over (or pressed in a waffle iron), but I like it.  Real’s kit is clean and simple.

The new Real Madrid [home] kit stands out for its sleek design. Gold is the chosen color for the details, including the adidas logo and the three stripes; a brand new feature which represents the many successes in the clubs history. For the first time since its foundation, the club has decided to include gold in the design of its uniforms. Players’ names and numbers will be golden too, matching the details on the jersey.

The badge has an innovative 3-D design, which reduces the weight of the garment, giving it an added feature. This jersey gets back to the classic polo collar, which carries the initials of the club on the reverse side.

Shorts and socks have the same classic lines as the jersey and include the  initials of the club:”RM”.  This jersey features adidas’ exclusive Climacool(tm) Technology which ensures body temperature control and ventilation, thanks to the use of technically advanced fabrics.

Chelea’s away kit includes turquoise squares are on a black background to create a striking design, while the shorts also feature a turquoise strip and the famous three adidas stripes in white. The socks include a revolutionary design that features anatomically placed cushioning and an Achilles protector.  The playing shirt features the adidas TechFit(tm) technology which will help
improve speed, increased endurance capabilities and enhanced awareness. This works by stabilizing and focusing the muscles’ energy to generate explosive acceleration and deliver maximum power output.
